A few kilometres from Alba and in the heart of the Roero stands Vezza d’Alba, a small town that’s packed with the history and culture of this area and its vocation for winemaking, fruit growing and the hunt for the precious Tuber Magnatum Pico, the Alba white truffle.
The estate’s vineyards are in the hamlet of La Funtana to the south-east, a place so closely linked to the Battaglio family that they borrowed its name. The first member of the family to make and sell wine was grandfather Giovanni, after the Second World War (he was known to everyone as Giuanin d’la Funtana). Part of the property is located in Neive where the Battaglios tend to the renowned Serragrilli vineyard, a Barbaresco Menzione Geografica.
Today it’s the entire Battaglio family - as ever, keen to talk wine - who greet tourists for visits to the winery, its steel vats and oak casks.
